Akshay Kumar is apt choice for the role of my father: Bhushan Kumar

Akshay will be playing the role of Gulshan Kumar in Mogul, based on the life of the music baron.


Producer Bhushan Kumar says Akshay Kumar is the best choice to play the role of his late father Gulshan Kumar because both have many similarities.

At the song launch of Sonakshi Sinha's upcoming movie Noor on Wednesday, he said, "Akshay is the apt choice for the role because he has many similarities with my father. Both are Punjabis and believe in Vaishno Devi. There are more similarities like this which you will see in the film."

The biopic on Gulshan Kumar, the man behind T-Series, is titled Mogul, and stars Akshay as the music mogul. It will be a story of 'rag to riches'. The biopic is being directed by Subhash Kapoor. The brain behind the film is Gulshan's son Bhushan, who now runs T-Series.

Speaking about the film he said, "It is an emotional film for us. We are all attached to this story because it is a story of my father. Whoever has been associated with the film be it Akshay or Subhash Kapoor all are emotional about the project."

Although the flick's poster has recently been released, the biopic will go on floors by the end of 2017.
